“A lot of students complained to us.”

As you read this story about what a bang-up job the athletic department continues to do handling the disbursement of student football tickets, remember that Georgia’s mandatory student athletic fee is one of the biggest in the conference.

Way to build that future alumni base, guys.

    Seems for several years BM has not been fan or student friendly, such as above and moving parking/tailgating further away from stadium. Their main objective should be to make sure there is a butt in every seat every game.

    They should be complaining just this fee. Ridiculous tuition fee increases, changing books every year for no obvious reason, etc., is much more expensive.

    • They change the books every year because much of that money goes in the professors’ pockets. No different than any other school.

        No shit, I know, and that’s the point: it is a total scheme to rob the students. Tuition increases several times the inflation number we are fed, tenured profs salaries raised because they are protected, and then they feel the need to hose them for books that are simply a reprint with a new publishing date. So why is it OK at any school again? Educations cost more due to such BS then educators scream about student loan costs….give me a break. Becoming like a game of 3 card Monty, anything to fleece the little darlings that we are telling how much they need a degree. Most of these kids should go to a vocational school and have some control over the rest of their lives…..without a huge debt load to overcome..

    The very same professors who rail against greed, capitalism and the wealthy?

    Not trying to hijack this thread, but on an unrelated note has anyone noticed the lackluster demand for home game ticket re-sales so far this year. My Nicholls State (home opener) tickets will be lucky to fetch much over face value for great seats and many of the other tickets listed for sale are dropping prices like a lead balloon. The Vandy (homecoming) and Louisiana Layfayette ticket prices are the same way, but have time to recover if the year shapes up well. However, if early season signs are a trend, ticket demand is not starting out well for a new coach with high hopes, so it will be real interesting to see next year’s ticket trends with the increasing prices and donation count.

    I also offered the Nicholls and ULL tickets to my friends at face value and unlike past years, they weren’t interested in buying the tickets either. Face value is actually selling the tickets for a loss when consider the donation requirement.

    did I read that article correctly? incoming freshmen and transfers have priority over returning students for home games? that is one incredible solution to the problem. graduating in 4 years, haven’t missed a home game in 3 years? congrats, here’s your lottery number. Transferring from Georgia Perimeter college? congrats, here’s your full suite of games.

    After I graduated in ‘6, they used accumulated hours on campus as a bonus towards getting tickets, not a penalty.
